My take on Hyderabad Bomb Blast

I am going to do some praising and blaming here, so don’t read if not interested.

People: Good that people responded soon to move the victims to hospitals. I hope people to keep reacting in such a fast way in all future incidents.

CM & Politicians: What is the need to visit the area after the blast? Did we elect you to do police investigation? or to run after culprits? Your visit will block traffic, interrupt investigation. And what if there is another bomb nearby? Are you out of your mind?

People: Why we are expecting the politicians to visit us? What are we going to get? If some politician does not visit, then we blame them saying they do not care. And they come to visit due to fear of your vote. Not because they want to.

JP: I heard that you also visited the place. Come on. Why you need to visit? What did you achieve?

People: I see FB posts saying there is one camera, or no one watching for these events. Do you think anyone can protect you from a random bomb blast in this much big country? Are you out of your mind? Do you want govt to install crores of Cameras in every street and hire lakhs of people to watch them? Then you will fight about privacy.

People: This is the price we have to pay for the inability to leave religion. It is not about one religion. Every one please convert to Atheism, soon people from those hard core religious fundamentalists will also convert. That is the only way I see to accelerate this process. Next time don’t do strike because some one did hurt your feelings.

People: ROI on expenses for protecting these random acts of violence is very poor. Don’t ask govt to increase that spending. Instead ask Govt to put that money in education and improving reason.

Me: May be I should control my anger and not post this one.  I see more ROI in posting it.

Why I do not write Linkedin Recommendations?

I haven’t seen single recommendation by other people which includes any -ve remark. That means every one expects recommendations to be all +ve things. And I don’t think it is reasonable to write only +ve things about a person. It every one is writing only +ve things, what is the need of a new +ve recommendation?

If they have to be of any value, we must be able to write openly about that person. But how many of us can take a open comment about ourself? Can we dare to keep them in our profile?

Also I have seen recommendations which are written by arbitrary people. A write about B, but they never worked together. They may have worked in same company, but never together.

There are exceptions to this rule. I do write recommendations when I feel to write. And for that there has to be a very special characteristic that stands out always. If I say “X” about A then, every one seeing A should be able to see that X easily.


Opportunity places a large role in success. I am just back from a trip to my native place. I had to travel there to a small village deep inside. On the way to it I have seen many villages which are still in the process of development. The fruits of development have not reached fully there.

While I was waiting for my bus back to Hyderabad, I did talk to two young boys. They are 15 to 16 years old. They have been doing labor work from last 3 years, roaming from district to district based on seasons to find work.

One boy has to leave education to earn for this family. Another, did not join school at all. I asked, how long will you continue to do this kind of work? they say “Don’t know, may be until death”.

One of the main point I notice here is, they don’t like what they are doing. They also want to settle, and do some good job etc. But unfortunately the society have failed to provide the opportunity for them to do so. I suggested them that they can still learn how to read and write. They can get better work and no need to roam around the state for work if they learn to read and write. But not sure what my 15min interaction will do compared to almost 15 years of life they have seen.

I felt sorry for not able to provide opportunity for them.  They happened to be in bus stand because that is the place where they sleep every day when they are outside their homes.

As an individual I feel most happy when I change(+ve) lives of others through my influence. So my aim is to influence as many people as possible. I hope to stop my running for money very soon, and start working on what I really want.
